Artist

Alex or Aleck Miller ( Ford, possibly December 5, 1912 – May 24, 1965), known later in his career as Sonny Boy Williamson, was an American blues harmonica player, singer and songwriter.

He was an early and influential blues harp stylist who recorded successfully in the 1950s and 1960s.

Miller used various names, including Rice Miller and Little Boy Blue, before calling himself Sonny Boy Williamson, which was also the name of a popular Chicago blues singer and harmonica player.

To distinguish the two, Miller has been referred to as Sonny Boy Williamson II.

He first recorded with Elmore James on "Dust My Broom". Some of his popular songs include "Don't Start Me Talkin'", "Help Me", "Checkin' Up on My Baby", and "Bring It On Home".

He toured Europe with the American Folk Blues Festival and recorded with English rock musicians, including the Yardbirds, the Animals, and Jimmy Page. "Help Me" became a blues standard, and many blues and rock artists have recorded his songs.


Aleck “Rice” Miller alias Sonny Boy Williamson II, Willie Williamson, Willie Miller, "Little Boy Blue", "The Goat" e "Footsie" (Glendora5 dicembre 1908 – Helena25 maggio 1965) è stato un cantantecompositore e armonicista blues statunitense.

Lyrics

Well, I'm goin' down to Rosie's, stop at Fannie Mae's
Gonna tell Fannie what I heard, her boyfriend say

Don't start me to talkin', I'll tell her everything I know
I'm gonna break up this signifyin', 'cause somebody's got to go

Jack give his wife two dollars, go downtown and get some margarine
Gets out on the streets, ol' George stopped her
He knocked her down, and blackened her eye
She gets back home, tell her husband a lie

Don't start me to talkin, I'll tell everything I know
I'm gonna break up this signifyin', somebody's got to go

She borrowed some money, go to the beauty shop
Jim honked his horn, she begin to stop
She said, "Take me, baby," around the block,
I'm goin to the beauty shop, where I can get my hair sock

Don't start me to talkin', I'll tell everything I know
Well, to break up this signifyin', somebody's got to go

Testo

Bene, sto andando da Rosie's, mi fermo da Fannie Mae
Dirò a Fannie quello che ho sentito, dice il suo ragazzo

Non iniziare a parlare, le dirò tutto quello che so
Sto per rompere questo significato, perche 'qualcuno deve andare

Jack dà a sua moglie due dollari, va in centro e prendi un po 'di margarina
Si spegne per le strade, o George l'ha fermata
La buttò a terra e annerì il suo sguardo
Torna a casa, dice a suo marito una bugia

Non iniziare a parlare, dirò tutto ciò che so
Sto per rompere questo significato, qualcuno deve andare

Ha preso in prestito dei soldi, va al negozio di bellezza
Jim suonò il clacson, cominciò a fermarsi
Ha detto: "Prendimi, piccola", intorno all'isolato,
Vado al salone di bellezza, dove posso prendere i capelli

Non iniziare a parlare, dirò tutto ciò che so
Bene, per spezzare questo significato, qualcuno deve andare
